A collection of road-going Lancia homologation specials is coming up for auction. RM Sotheby’s is selling the cars at its Essen sale in Germany on 11-12 April.
Lancia collection up for sale
A 1975 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale, one of only 492 produced, is a rare example in unrestored and all-original condition. Initially owned by Guido Bignardi, a member of a prominent Italian rallying family, the car has had only one further owner since, and is expected to make £420,000 to £450,000.
Also up is a 1984 Lancia 037 Stradale homologation special, which was also delivered new to a member of the Bignardi family. It’s described as in “exceptionally well-preserved condition” and has done just 3500km from new. Its estimate is £305,000 to £350,000.
A 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Stradale, designed to homologate the Group B rally car, is one of 200 road-going versions built. It has done less than 2200km from new and is estimated to sell for £390,000 to £480,000. A 1970 Lancia Fulvia Rallye 1.6 HF ‘Fanalone’ (£52,000 to £60,000) completes the Lancia motorsport line-up.
